Let's talk about Iraq! Obama was given a stable Iraq, violence was down, people voted for someone other then Saddam. No madman with a new stockpile of WMD's nor one of his sons. A hard fought victory as long as he didn't f*ck it up. Guess what, he did now we are back for the THIRD time fighting someone he does not take seriously just like Clinton didn't take UBL. Who has Obama invaded? Pakistan, Somalia, Yemen, Libya, Syria all for good reasons at times but for someone that wanted to end a war he sure isn't holding up to his promise AND ALL INVADED WITHOUT THE APPROVAL OF CONGRESS! Obama didn't like GW's way of foreign policies, well I don't see Obama's way working out to good either! He doesn't like using military power because that is the one thing he hated about the US BUT we have an enemy that is coming ,fast. Does he want to go down in history as the president that allowed the second 9/11when we KNEW who they are and we could had done something about it? (15 hrs ago | post #55)
You forgot a page or two, didn't you? (18 hrs ago | post #43)
Obama has done more to erode civil liberties then GW ever thought about doing, remember NDAA? I defended this nation for 22 years against communism and radial Islam and sickens me that dumb*sses willingly gave this country to a socialist! At least with the above crew, our enemies feared us and our allies trusted us. We can't say that now! (18 hrs ago | post #51)
Returned the Canal, what an achievement! He lost Iran like Truman lost China and Obama lost Egypt, and allowed Iran to hold 52 Americas for 444 days! Not only did we lose an ally but we lost a strategic listening post against the USSR.The military didn't fail him, he failed the military as commander in chief by not giving them the resources needed to succeed. Interest rate were high, unemployment was high and he wanted us to turn our heat down and put on warmer clothing!, Really! The housing problem we had in 2008 started with him. The big was he THOUGHT he could negotiate with the Ayatollah. How has that worked out for us? (Yesterday | post #195)
Forty job bills to the Senate with ZERO brought to the floor, so who is in charge of the do nothing Congress? Harry Reid comes to mind NOT the GOP controlled House, they are doing their job! (Yesterday | post #46)
Didn't 9/11 show you how serious they are! (Monday | post #25)

If you were French I would call you Frog, Adolf. Are you saying Germany did not participate in the Crusade of 1197 (also known as the Crusade of Henry VI or the German Crusade of 1197. Funny how history says different. Adolf! Again, when ISIS says they will destroy the west, that includes you too! (Monday | post #35)
When they say they want to destroy the west, that means you too, Adolf! These people are still p*ssed about the Crusades. Who was around then? D*mn sure wasn't the USA! (Sunday | post #32)
NOW you are putting words into his mouth! NOW you make a blanket statement that is impossible to prove or disprove. Either way YOU are showing your lack of knowledge about Rand Paul , his commits and his ideology. You need a playbook, because when you lose the debate, lose in the arena of ideas or are proven wrong on an issue going straight to the "race card" is getting a little old. You are smarter then that, aren't you? (Sunday | post #13)
Which threats from ISIS didn't you understand? Fight them there or fight them here, you pick! (Sunday | post #6)
I saw the interview with Rachel Maddow. I never heard him say business owners could discriminate against blacks. I can see where pre-racial America could take his commit the wrong way (like you did) but we are suppose to be a post racial nation. Unless, people want to keep looking back and not forward. I see his point about government should not control what business does. No shirt, no shoes, no service etc. It was more libertarian then racial. Pre-civil rights see one, post civil rights see another. The one thing ALL presidents must face is foreign policy. You can say one thing, "no nation building" or "I will pull all troops out of Iraq" but they have no control on what bad people will do. He might call for isolationism, but I guarantee, current events will dictate more then his intent. (Sunday Aug 24 | post #3)
You too, need to look up Progressive tax rates and look up income tax v capital gains tax, there is a difference. You do know there are 2 houses of Congress, right? The House which has passed over 300 bills, most bi-partisan, and the Senate that is controlled by the Democrats that will not bring any to the floor for a vote. So how can a Republican controlled House work with Harry Reid, DEMOCRAT majority leader in the Senate if he won't bring bills to the floor? OR how can you work with a president that says he will not negotiate? It looks like you paid little attention to Civics 101? (Sunday Aug 24 | post #21)
Any more talking points from MSNBC? The myth of Clinton's surplus is just that, a myth. Projected surplus isn't money in hand. GW and the bailouts wasn't the first time in history but Obama took it and ran. But you say nothing about his doubling of the debt, why? Had the government stayed out if the housing market and or not repealed Glass-Stegall signed by Bill himself, well, shoulda, coulda!! Another thing that does not get blamed on the right people. It was fine to attack Serbia but Clinton sit on the sidelines for Rwanda? Somalia was over until Clinton decided he wanted to help the Pakis/UN. THEN his entire foreign policy was based off that one event that we have paid for and are still paying now. UBL saw that we were a paper tiger and Clinton was the cause. Read Jessica Sterns book, she was in Bill's administration so it isn't like it is a hit piece. Reagan was the best thing that happened for this country in my life time. More good then harm came from him unlike the clown we have now. He gave this country a since of pride we needed so badly after Vietnam, Nixon and Carter. Progressive tax,rates look it up, you need to. The "rich" have , always have and always will pay their "fair" share of taxes whether you believe it or not. (Sunday Aug 24 | post #185)
Do I have to explain the difference between vital organs and large bones? Would you be able to fight or run if you were shot in the arm with a .22 or a Desert Eagle? Shot placement counts not caliber or number of rounds fired. (Sunday Aug 24 | post #1393)
